My parents are coming in town soon and I would like to find some restaurants that might be good for our group. Everyone going to eat loves innovative, delicious cuisine--minus my father. While I would like to take my family to EMP, Cru, somewhere more special, he is more of a plain eater-- no special garnishes, etc. He'll eat steak, lobster, a few kinds of fish (salmon, dover sole), but he likes everything prepared simply. Places that worked for us in the past include any steakhouse and traditional Italian restaurants (think pasta and meat sauce or veal/chicken parmesan). Any suggestions for a place where he can get something like that but the rest of us will be more excited by the menu? Thanks!
